If you are a psychology nerd, you will love this museum. It is small, but very nicely put together. The audio guides provide basic information with the option to audibly learn about a few other items in each room. For everything else there are guide books that are extremely informatiomal. The only downside is that since the family moved to... More

We visited this small museum housed in Frauds Vienna apartment. It is a bit out from the centre and at €9 I would say it is pricey. However, as I like many, many others have studied Freud I felt obliged to attend. It does have a large amount of Freud’s belongings which is a big plus and it does give... More

There is huge potential in this museum by pulling in the storyline rather than presenting a series of memorabilia with numbers. Yes we could see photos, certificates, mirrors and correspondence, but there is no story and Freud was left a bit of an enigma. A role model is the Sisi (Empress Elisabeth) museum where we got to know the person,... More

I couldn't leave Vienna without visiting the Sigmund Freud museum (or so I thought). Well thank goodness I didn't have to sacrifice going somewhere else to visit here. There is not much there of substance. Lots of writings, news articles, a couch, tables, chairs and some memorabilia. This is a reading museum and not really enough to warrant spending too... More

If you have an interest, it is worth the walk or ride. The museum is small - his former home and office. There are some interesting artifacts, including a display of the content of postcards he wrote to his wife while on his travels. The consulting room is set up as it was when he worked there. We stopped in... More

I have a doctorate in counselor education. That is, I teach counselors how to be counselors. As you can imagine, I've spent most of my academic career studying psychology, and thus am aware of Freud's work and influence on many fields of learning. I was excited to see the Freud Museum. I was wondering how many sites I'd be able... More

I titled my review as I did because I think it's a legitimate question: the man clearly had a unique interpretation of the goings on in the world, and certainly felt strongly about his numerous train rides, so he would probably have a field day reading over some of the things written about him and his museum. Nonetheless, this is... More

I am an enthusiastic fan of Freud's work, so this was really a treat for me. The free audio guide was very interesting and even contained the only recorded radio interview with Freud himself. If you already know a bit about Freud's writings, you will definitely enjoy this small and unique museum. The staff were lovely, and the small size... More

Based in Freud's Vienna apartment where he lived and worked. You can see the patient waiting room, the examination room, and his study. Quite a small museum but a lot of information is given on the free audio guide about Freud's life and there are lots of pictures and memorabilia, although most stuff isn't original or in the original place....

This museum was once Freud's Vienna home. It has a great sense of history because he once lived there. Among other things you can see the patient waiting room, his chair, his writing desk, one of "the couches" and other Freud memoabilia, books, photos and the like. Most of the items are not in their original location and have been... More
